marco rubio, who issued a statement that said, in part, president obama is again using his power by imposing his policies via executive fiat. mr. obama pleaded with americans to confront congress directly. >> ask them what's more important. doing whatever it takes to get a "a" grade from the gun lobby or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade. >> reporter: he even show cased children who have written him since newtown. >> she said, "i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard." [ light laughter ] julie, i will try very hard. >> reporter: chuck todd, nbc news, the white house. >>> this is john yang in chicago where residents deal with gun violence virtually every day. last year, there were more than 510 murders, more than the number of u.s. troops killed in afghanistan. 86% of the homicides involved a gun. in one chicago interview, nothing president obama did would change that. >> i believe chicago already has very strict gun laws and we have, like, one of the highest crime rates in the country. so how is

. then marco rubio said nothing the president is proposing would have--stopping such violence. >> cenk: this is the thing that is driving me craze. none of this would have stopped sandy hook. you know what would have stopped sandy hook? if we had much tougher gun control. oh he's not doing enough so it wouldn't have stopped sandy hook. great, let's do more. >> rubio is saying he's not doing things to attack the underlying problems that there are. he is he's talking about not just gun control but mental health and executives orders of putting todd jones at the head of the atf. >> i have to agree with michael here. you look at the proposals and it's very comprehensive. he does target a large variety of issues. aside from gun control and i like that. anyone who is reasonable and logical could not look at obama's proposals and say it goes too far. they are common sense. we should have more back round checks and get rid of the gun show loopholes. i don't understand why they would fight against that. >> cenk: because they represent the gun manufacturers and they want to make more money. ther

. >> and, in fact, marco rubio, chuck, has put out a statement saying that nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not go

were trying to keep us from voting. >> now, of course marco rubio, a senator from florida took issue with it. do you see any other republicans coming out, condemning these kinds of laws like powell just talked about? >> well, listen, no one has the kind of strength of conviction that general powell does when it comes to critiquing the republican party. part of that is because he's not really in politics the way some of these folk are. but there to be a reckoning in the republican party. they have to deal with everything he has laid out here, because the demographics are the destiny for the party. unless they want to become obsolete, they have to pay attention to the issues colin powell laid out for them on "meet the press" yesterday. >> it doesn't sound like you think the republicans are going to take any of his advice. >> there is no suggestion that they will, ed. the proof will be in the pudding. either they will or they won't. but, again, a lot of folk have been talking about these things for a long time. you hope coming from a republican general as respected as general powell wil

. the white house said senator marco rubio's latest comments on immigration reform bode well for the possibility of cooperation. republicans have been no friend to wage earners, particularly over the past four years. to them immigration reform has the potential to put more votes in the democratic column. but if republicans ignore the issue, they risk losing even more hispanic voters and minority voters across the board. this might finally be the time for something that is long overdue. and it could be great for the american economy. the tech industry wants to reform because it would stop the brain drain of highly skilled workers putting undocumented laborers on the books is a good thing because it pumps dollars into the economy. i am joined tonight by hilda solis, secretary of labor who is leaving that position, but in my opinion has done a fabulous job. >> thank you. >> you've been a tremendous advocate across the board for not just labor, but for the environment, green jobs, women's rights. >> thank you. >> the lot. hilda, what about immigration reform and what it would mea
